NFL Asks Court For More Time To File Reply In Antitrust Case
The NFL asked a federal court in Minnesota Thursday to allow it to delay filing its reply to the antitrust lawsuit pending against the league until July 6 instead of Monday. However, the league disclosed in papers filed at the court Thursday that the counsel for the 10 players suing the league opposes the move. The league argues because the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals will likely rule by early July on whether to overturn the Minnesota court’s decision enjoining the lockout, that decision will affect the reply, and may even cause the league to file a motion to dismiss.
